According to statistics, termites cost homeowners billions of damage annually. Termites mainly feed on hardwood and are known to damage insulation; filtration systems, pool liners and they can even damage books and other paper products.
When purchasing or selling a house, the severity of termite infestation is a major deciding factor for a buyer.
